White House Plumbers 2023: Release Date, Cast, Plot, And All The Information You Should Know

White House Plumbers is a Watergate-themed HBO and Sky Atlantic drama starring Woody Harrelson, Lena Heady, Justin Theroux, and Judy Greer.

A gang of men stormed into the Democratic National Committee (DNC) offices at the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C., in the summer of 1972. In what would become one of the largest political scandals in U.S. history, their arrest and following inquiry led to President Richard Nixon’s demise.

The Watergate crisis has been the topic of numerous films and television shows over the years, but a new limited series from HBO and Sky Atlantic titled White House Plumbers offers a new viewpoint.

The planned drama series centres on the individuals known as “The White House Plumbers” who committed the epic burglary. The burglary was arranged by G. Gordon Liddy, a solicitor and former FBI agent, and E. Howard Hunt, a retired CIA officer.

The series examines the events preceding and following the burglary, offering insight on the culprits’ lives and the scandal’s impact on American politics.

Release Date and Distribution

White House Plumbers was originally scheduled to broadcast on HBO in March 2023, but was postponed for reasons unknown. The premiere of the series is currently scheduled for Monday, May 1, 2023, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The five episodes will be distributed weekly, as is customary for all original HBO programming.

Plot Synopsis

The official synopsis for White House Plumbers provides a brief summary of the series: “White House Plumbers tells the story of how Nixon’s own political saboteurs and Watergate masterminds, E. Howard Hunt (Woody Harrelson) and G. Gordon Liddy (Justin Theroux), accidentally overthrew the presidency they were so zealously attempting to protect.” The series will investigate the events leading up to the Watergate scandal, the break-in itself, and the subsequent events.


The director of White House Plumbers, David Mandel, has stated that the series will concentrate solely on the break-in, offering a fresh perspective in comparison to other films and television programmes that have covered the Watergate incident. Mandel has noted, “In the majority of Watergate films, the burglary serves as the opening sequence.

You witness glimpses of the burglary, followed by the Oval Office, Nixon, and The Washington Post journalists. This is a limited series that focuses solely on the burglary. Before the burglary, we’ll meet these men, and then we’ll observe the impact of the crime on their lives. This is the story that, to some extent, none of the others bothered to tell.”
